Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

I am curious to see how Lucas votes and if he votes against it, whether he exercises his veto power. If he vetos, I don't see having the 9 out of 12 council people necessary to approve it.

Re: Various restaurants coming to City

I tried Fox and Pearl last night. This is easily top 3 resto's in the city for me right now. Maybe tops overall. Loved everything about it. Very cool space, great menu, great drinks, and great service.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

You are pretty much describing the KCATA property along 18th street (Which is what was highlighted in the previous posts). Its not actually at 18th and Vine, but on the edge. Its also not actually in the Xroads, but just on the edge. It is a dead spot between two districts next to a highway and is ...

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

I've got to think if Waddel and Reed is moving downtown, they're going into a project that is already approved and moving toward construction. This fits that pretty well.

Re: VanTrust Plaza Office Buildings

I don't get why these building would need to be incentivized? They are basically just moving the 49 main building to 50 Baltimore and replacing it with a bigger building.

Don't quite get the indoor fountain. Looks like they had a hole in the ceiling, put up a tarp, and now the rain is pouring through.
In the presentation they said the fountain isn't designed yet, but since they keep getting asked where it will be they wanted to show the location.

Re: Street Eats and Interesting Counters

The Iron District in NKC at 16th and Iron (right past where the cycle track goes under I-35 to head west toward Swift) will be a nice food hub and add to the growing draw in NKC. They plan to have a stage for music and events as well.

Yup. I'd say KC people generally have no idea how much other cities' are growing. We pale in comparison. And the pipeline is looking pretty dry.
